About Handan

Handan, located in the south of Hebei, is an ancient city with a history of three thousand years. Handan was the second capital of the State of Zhao during the Warring States Period and there are many cultural figures in the historical record who hail from here. At the same time, its natural landscape is not lacking in any way. The undulating stretches of the Taihang Mountains and Lake Jingniang, with its emerald green waters, imbue this ancient city with an air of spiritual grace. The nearby ancient city of Guangfu and the Wahuang Palace are also historical sites well worth a visit.
